I am exatly the opposite, but I am a to-do list maker in life in general.  My favorite part about my wedding planning binder is the 15 page checklist in the front.  I love checking off the boxes!  It also really does help to keep me organized, and I think make a weekly to-do list on my board at home from the big to-do list in my planning book.  I am not sure where I would be right now without it.

LOL. It’ll come together slowly and you’ll feel better. I went through a similar checklist on mywedding, and after I had reviewed budget and what I wanted, I basically stopped looking at it until I had done so much, I couldn’t remember what was left (just the little things, basically). 😉 If you’re not a list-maker, I’d turn off those notifications. That kind of thing gives me anxiety.

Me too! I know I have things under control (I’d better, I’ve only got 32 days!), but my God those checklists make me uncomfortable sometimes.

Those checklists stressed me out to no end when I planned our wedding.  I found one where I could delete items that did not apply, and once I got rid of such things as “start rigorous workout routine” and “buy wedding magazine and drool over dresses”, the list got much smaller and I felt much better.

Also, they made me feel like I should have booked certain vendors 5 years in advance and that I was waaaaay behind. But everything turned out just fine.

Start checking off ish that you have no intention of doing. It feels good! “Book transportation”…. eh, no thanks. “Remind groomsmen to get fitted” for the 8th time…. they are big boys and I trust them to be all over that. “Select outfit for the flower girl”…. thanks, but we’re not having one of those.
